00:00:02--> 00:00:07

But of the role model sallallahu alayhi, WA early he was held them.

00:00:08--> 00:00:14

The Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam, indeed was the perfect human being.

00:00:15--> 00:00:18

And it's not true that he was always

00:00:19--> 00:00:38

sad and contemplating and thinking of the hereafter. Because this is inhumane. The prophet as a Salam was the perfect balance. He used to be sad, and he used to be happy.

00:00:39--> 00:01:06

Whenever there is a reason to be sad, he used to be sad. And when there was a reason to be happy, he was happy. He was pleased when things needed to be pleased with and he was angry when he needed to be angry, as a perfect human being. He was filled with emotions, and he used to become happy at times, yet his happiness

00:01:07--> 00:01:11

was in the direction of what pleases Allah azza wa jal

00:01:12--> 00:01:25

and not for worldly matters. We are happy when we buy a new car, a new gadget, when we receive gifts, worldly things.

00:01:26--> 00:01:47

This was not the case with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam. So we will list few things, just to understand how the Prophet sallallahu wasallam lived his life, and what made him happy, so that we may rejoice with such things when it happens in our lives.

00:01:48--> 00:01:53

The Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam, as described by the Companions,

00:01:54--> 00:02:16

whenever he was pleased or happy with with something his face would lit. And his Companions would recognize this in his face. So in a sense, he didn't have what we call poker face. No, the emotions would show on his face, or the his Salatu was Salam.

00:02:17--> 00:02:19

And they would know

00:02:21--> 00:02:23

by the change

00:02:24--> 00:02:35

that they can see. For example, when people embrace Islam, revert to Islam, especially when they are

00:02:36--> 00:02:51

part of the elite or the dignitary of Quraysh. The Prophet would be happy because he knows that there will follow them a lot of the people and follow suit.

00:02:52--> 00:02:53

A crema

00:02:54--> 00:03:22

may Allah be pleased with him. He is the son of Abuja, while the fierce enemy of the Prophet isozyme and of Islam. He's the pharaoh of this ummah. He tormented Muslims, killed them, plotted against Islam did everything he could tell his last breath. Such a, an enemy, you would hate

00:03:23--> 00:03:30

everything that is related to them, and you would have wanted to kill anyone related to them, even their dogs.

00:03:32--> 00:03:37

Not the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, ala crema, when he

00:03:38--> 00:03:43

heard of the conquest of Makkah, fled and traveled all the way to Yemen.

00:03:45--> 00:04:16

And his wife traveled to him, trying to convince him to accept Islam, and not to fear for his life because whoever comes to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, accepting Islam, the prophet accepts that from him. So he traveled back to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, and accepted and reverted Islam. The Prophet Sall Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam was very happy.

00:04:17--> 00:04:59

And he jumped to him, and gave him his cloak, and took the pledge of allegiance from him when he came, and this appeared clearly on the prophets face. And this shows you that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not have any hidden agenda. If he were to hate someone, he would have hated the son of a Bucha hell for what he had done yet. He was happy for him accepting Islam. Likewise, he was happy when I didn't have to

00:05:00--> 00:05:00

Upon eat,

00:05:02--> 00:05:06

came and accepted Islam. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salatu salam

00:05:08--> 00:05:12

smiled in his face and his face was lit when he

00:05:13--> 00:05:16

announced that he came as Muslim.

00:05:19--> 00:05:24

Likewise, Whenever the Prophet alayhi salatu salam learn something

00:05:26--> 00:05:27

new that

00:05:29--> 00:05:31

would confirm

00:05:32--> 00:05:35

a fact that people denied

00:05:37--> 00:05:38

he would be happy.

00:05:39--> 00:05:51

We spoke before about his adopted son, ze dimenhydrinate, may Allah be pleased with him, who was his son till adoption was abolished in Islam.

00:05:53--> 00:05:57

The Prophet loved him as a real son and continue to love him.

00:05:58--> 00:06:04

Zaid was, when described as white as cotton.

00:06:05--> 00:06:16

The Prophet married him to an Abyssinian slave woman who took care of the Prophet when he was young. I think he thought seven. So you can imagine how old she was.

00:06:17--> 00:06:18

And she gave birth

00:06:20--> 00:06:21


00:06:22--> 00:06:25

a young boy by the name of Osama.

00:06:26--> 00:06:50

However, Osama was as black as night. So people usually hinted that Osama is not the legitimate son of Zaid say it is white, Caucasian, and Osama is black. How could that be? And the Prophet sallallahu sallam was

00:06:51--> 00:06:53

discomforted by such comments.

00:06:54--> 00:07:11

And he did not like this. He loved Osama and his father's aide dearly like a son and a grandson. Until one day one of the trackers. His name was Moses, Al Metalogix

00:07:12--> 00:07:15

entered the house of the prophet Ali sauce.

00:07:16--> 00:07:26

When Osama and his father's aide were lying down, covering their faces, only their feet showing from underneath the blanket

00:07:27--> 00:07:30

to white feet to black feet.

00:07:32--> 00:07:49

As a tracker, as someone who has insight of tracking people knowing things, they have this ability and gift from Allah. And he did not know the story behind Osama and his father and what the people say.

00:07:50--> 00:07:55

He commented the moment he saw these feet and he said, these feet

00:07:56--> 00:08:01

are from one another they belong to one another meaning that they're related.

00:08:02--> 00:08:26

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam was so happy that they that this man managed to notice this, without being hinted to, and revealed what is a fact and the truth known to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, but unknown to the others.

00:08:28--> 00:08:55

We all know that the Prophet sallallahu sallam was tested and tried by a huge and severe calamity. When the hypocrites slandered his beloved Wi Fi Isha and accused her of adultery with soft one. One of the companions may Allah be pleased with him, and they started spreading rumors and slandering her everywhere.

00:08:56--> 00:08:57

The Prophet sallallahu sallam

00:08:59--> 00:09:00

was this maid

00:09:01--> 00:09:05

and for a whole month, Revelation did not come down to

00:09:06--> 00:09:13

show her innocence or to reveal any of the truth and the Prophet sallahu wa sallam

00:09:14--> 00:09:17

could not judge an issue by mere feelings.

00:09:18--> 00:09:19

He needed proof.

00:09:21--> 00:09:26

So after a whole month, and after this ordeal,

00:09:27--> 00:09:59

Allah azza wa jal revealed her innocence in Surah two Nora in the Quran, and the Prophet sallallahu sallam was so happy it would show in his face and he would come to our Isha laughing. And the first thing he said to her oh I Isha, Allah has proven your innocence. So he was jubilant and happy with such a relief from Allah subhanahu wa

00:10:00--> 00:10:00


00:10:01--> 00:10:04

not only that, as a human being,

00:10:05--> 00:10:40

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was frequently bombarded by his beloved wives. There were nine of them. And they all demanded more money, not to the extent that they wanted to buy Versace, or whatever, they just wanted a normal life. We know the hardship. The Prophet alayhi wa salam and his family went through when Mother Nature said that we would

00:10:41--> 00:10:50

pass two months, two months would pass upon us without lightning, any fire in the house or cooking.

00:10:51--> 00:11:07

And what did you feed upon? She says water and dates for two months. So you can imagine the hardship, especially for women who came from rich families, like those whom the prophet had married to Ali salatu salam.

00:11:09--> 00:11:31

So when they came and complained, the Prophet sallallahu sallam was angered by their consistency in demanding and demanding so he took a pledge not to come close to them for a whole month and he took a small room in the masjid and kept himself in seclusion from his all of his wives.

00:11:32--> 00:11:35

And everybody was thinking that he's going to divorce them.

00:11:37--> 00:12:06

After this month was over, he went to LA salatu salam, as Allah has revealed to him and gave his wives the choice, and among them was Isha. So Allah says, oh, Prophet of Allah, say to your wife, to your wives, if you want this worldly life, and it's a dormant, Come, I will provide for you and set you free, I will divorce you.

00:12:07--> 00:12:32

But if you want Allah and His messenger and the hereafter, then know that Allah has prepared for those who do good among you. A great, huge reward. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to her, Listen, Aisha, I'd like to mention something to you. But don't give me an answer before consulting your parents. And he recited the iron.

00:12:35--> 00:12:40

So he gave her the choice. And she said to him, why would I consult my parents?

00:12:41--> 00:12:48

I want Allah and the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and the hereafter.

00:12:49--> 00:13:08

So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam was so happy with that. It could show on his face, because this is what he wanted. He loved his wives, but this is his mission in life. This is his lifestyle. This is how Allah made him and he cannot

00:13:10--> 00:13:16

rest, with the adornment of life coming to him like everyone else.

00:13:18--> 00:13:34

Among the things that made him happier his salatu salam were confirmation of things about the future prophecies that he told his companions. Of course, all of his companions

00:13:36--> 00:13:38

believed him. Undoubtedly.

00:13:40--> 00:13:42

But sometimes,

00:13:43--> 00:13:57

it would be nice, it would feel nice. If you get a confirmation that would reiterate what you had told them earlier. And this happened when Tammy my daddy, may Allah be pleased with him came.

00:13:59--> 00:14:10

And he told the Prophet alayhi salatu salam about his encounter of the Antichrist and mercy had the jungle on an island and some of the prophecies that he gave,

00:14:11--> 00:14:27

and it coincided exactly with what the Prophet SAW Selim had told them about earlier, and it fit like a glove. So the Prophet gathered all the Muslims, all the companions in the masjid, and he told them

00:14:29--> 00:14:59

to me, was a Christian. And he encountered few things while on a sea journey that coincide with what I told you earlier. And he told them exactly in the very long Hadith, how to me met a digital and how did Jamal explained to them about the Lake of Tabari about this, about that, how many days he's gonna spend on earth? Then the Prophet said that is had I not told you about

00:15:00--> 00:15:20

This before and they said yes so prophet of Allah you told us exactly these things before the story of Timmy. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was happy that this hadith of Tamim coincided with whatever he used to tell them about Mecca and Medina and the Antichrist.

00:15:22--> 00:15:30

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam also was happy whenever something good to happen to any of his companions.

00:15:31--> 00:15:48

Khabib pneumonic for example, one of the three poets of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, when he did not catch up with the expedition with the Prophet of Islam to to book on the ninth year of hijra, and the Prophet came back,

00:15:49--> 00:16:15

the hypocrites came to give their apologies, oh, we could not come and catch up with you because this because of that, and the Prophet would accept their apologies Kabaneri Malik and two other men from the companies said, oh prophet of Allah, we will not lie, we had no excuse. So the Prophet ordered the Companions not to speak to them. For 50 days they were boycotted

00:16:16--> 00:16:45

by the whole of Medina, nobody would communicate with them or say salaam or talk with them, until Allah revealed their his acceptance of their repentance. So when this happened, the prophets Allah Salam called cab, and cab came, and the prophets face was lit with joy and happiness and it says, Have the glad tidings or cab

00:16:46--> 00:16:57

with the best day since your mother gave birth to you today, when Allah has repented upon you? And he said, Is this from you or from Allah? He said, this is from Allah.

00:16:59--> 00:17:00

The Prophet was happy for cap

00:17:02--> 00:17:22

and the Prophet alayhi salat wa salam would also become happy whenever he was supported by his companions at times of difficulty. Whenever he heard beautiful words, like when Allah Mecca dad didn't tell us what may Allah be pleased with him

00:17:24--> 00:17:32

was with the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and they were about to encounter the enemy forces and the Prophet Salah Salem was

00:17:33--> 00:17:40

afraid that he would not have the support of the people of Medina because he did not

00:17:41--> 00:17:53

give them the pledge of allegiance to accompany him outside of Medina outskirts but rather to defend him while being within the limits of Medina. So when he he had to go out and fight.

00:17:54--> 00:18:05

He was hesitant, he was afraid, maybe they won't back me up. So America, S word may Allah be pleased with him, said to him, oh prophet of Allah.

00:18:06--> 00:18:36

We will not say to you, like the Jews said to Moses, peace be upon him go, you and your Lord and fight, we are sitting here, we're not coming with you. Rather, we will fight to your right to your left from in front of you, and from behind you, meaning that we will be with you round the clock. Don't be afraid. So the Prophet SAW salams face lit, and he was pleased with that.

00:18:38--> 00:18:41

The Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And I will conclude with this

00:18:43--> 00:18:46

was also happy whenever there was

00:18:48--> 00:18:49

a cause

00:18:50--> 00:19:07

to be happy whenever the Muslims have benefited. So whenever the Prophet heard some news, that was positive. That was helpful for the Muslims and for Islam, he would prostrate

00:19:08--> 00:19:11

in happiness in showing his gratitude to Allah.

00:19:12--> 00:19:17

And this happens only in something that does not reoccur.

00:19:18--> 00:19:44

Unlike what many ignorant among the Muslims do nowadays, after fajr prayer, all of a sudden after the death card, they just go and prostrate. Okay, what are you doing come? You said I'm prostrating to Allah azza wa jal showing my gratitude and I say, but this is not permissible, said Subhan. Allah, the Prophet used to offer this sujood a shocker.

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

And I said yes, but all scholars say that he used to do this when something that does not occur, happens such as the conquest of a country. That was

00:20:00--> 00:20:14

In war against Islam, and the Muslims, or the saving of a Muslim prisoner and the release or something that happens once every blue moon

00:20:15--> 00:20:21

because if we were to be grateful to Allah and show our gratitude with this sujood

00:20:22--> 00:21:08

for his blessings and favors, we would not stop prostrating, he gave us the site, he gave us the heating, he gave us the health he gave us the wealth, he gave us the shelter, so many things. So we will keep on prostrating till the Day of Judgment. This is not the way of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam. So what you're doing is in an innovation, don't do this, when you receive receive your paycheck at the end of the month. don't prostrate for gratitude, because this is coming every month. But if your father goes into ICU, and he undergoes a surgery, a major surgery or life threatening surgery, and he makes it yes, you can make the sujood because this is once every blue moon and the

00:21:08--> 00:21:47

profit I saw some would also be happy and show his jubilation when the Muslims come and give for charity, as in the case when few nomads came into the masjid with torn clothes and signs of poverty over them. And the Prophet was angered by that and you can say see it in his face. So he started encouraging the Muslims on the pulpit, to give and shelter themselves from hellfire even by half a date. And he recited the verses that would encourage this. Nobody moved.

00:21:48--> 00:22:39

Everybody was sitting until one man came with a big bag of food and clothes that barely he could carry. And he placed it in front of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, as charity, the moment the Companions so this, they immediately ran to their homes and brought all what they can, until they made a big pile of food and clothes and things that they would benefit from then the face of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam lit, and he was pleased by their reaction to his call to help those in need. This is how we should react. This is when we should be happy, not for worldly things, not foreseeing since when we hear of people coming to Islam, even if they were enemies of Islam. We're

00:22:39--> 00:22:53

happy. When we see Muslims benefiting from charity, we're happy when we see glad tidings for Islam, the Muslims, we become happy like the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam
